Kidohara Archeological Site and Artifacts

Kidohara Archeological Site artifacts: (From left) Usudama (similar to “mill” stones), Kudatama (polished stone tool) , tube beads
A mid-Kofun period site. The site hints at a deep connection with the Korean Peninsula as it yielded artifacts virtually unknown in most other settlements, including iron bars and Korean-style earthenware. The site and its artifacts speak of the seafaring skills of the Ama, who enabled the journeys to and from the Peninsula during the time of the Five Kings of Wa.
